Spell check

I have a colleague in a branch office who "communicates" via email. However her grasp of English is tenuous at best. Her emails usually do not container capital letters or punctuation, except a single period at the very end. She ALWAYS uses the wrong form of are ("the repairs our complete") and substitutes where for were AND we're every time. Her syntax is often confusing as well, so reading these emails is a challenge. It's difficult to comprehend that she was born and raised in the Midwest.

All that said, I wonder if she reads my emails and thinks that I use too many commas and spell everything wrong.
